A nice flour, makes a good loaf in my bread maker. Previously bought doves but find this one better, the loaf is a bit lighter. 16kg sack is a good size for the home bread maker.
I have been using this flour for 6 years when i used to buy it straight from the mill. It is an excellent flour giving a denser more filling loaf. I have never had any problems with it as long as you knead it well between the provings. I have added seeds to the dough also oatmeal and even rosemary and black pepper and have never had any problems with it rising. I have been making bread for 20 odd years and this is the best whole meal flour i have found.
On third batch of this of which the first two were greatthe third arrived with damp in the bag so returned for replacementfor some reason, i don’t know if its been the damp autumn but my loaves are not as good with exact same processmy guess is the flour is not of same quality. Here are the specifications for the Bacheldre Watermill Organic Stoneground Strong 100% Wholemeal Flour 16 kg:
- Stoneground 100% wheat
- Full flavoured and satisfying
- Strong for bread making
- No additives
- Enough to make 32 x 500 g loaves
Great tasty bread from this flour. A yet i’ve only made a few loaves with this flour but i’m impressed with the flavour and the texture achieved, the bag is bigger than i’d expected so it’s great value too. Having used this flour for a few years i’m still impressed and i now add a little bit of white strong flour 1/3 when i want a lighter style loaf to toast well.
First time i’ve bought flour in a bag bigger than 1. 5 kg so i hope it will keep. It makes excellent bread in my bread machine; usually mix 200g of this with 100g each of strong white and brown flour for a lighter texture.
Reviews from purchasers :
- coarsely ground wholemeal flour
- Tasteful High Quality Flour
- Love this flour:)
We make most of our own bread and at last we have found a flour that makes excellent, tasty loaves. We normally use half and half wholemeal and white. This has proved consistently good.
Very good quality flour that mixes well and produces a lovely dough easily kneaded and rises nicely. Once cooked the bread produced has a lovely taste especially toasted. I found that this flour is better with less water added than would be normally added otherwise it can be a bit heavy.
